Powhatan County firefighters showed up in force last week to voice alarm and disappointment over what many called a mishandling and lack of communication surrounding efforts to meet emergency services needs. During a special meeting of the Powhatan County Board of Supervisors held on Thursday, April 11, about three dozen fire and EMS volunteers were present, with several of them sharing their anger and frustration about recent events and over low morale among the volunteers. Many volunteers were outraged earlier this month by a letter fire and rescue Chief Steven Singer sent to senior policy members regarding a plan to provide additional requested paid Advanced Life Support (ALS) staffing to ensure quality coverage.
